Byetta Overview

Exenatide (marketed as Byetta, Bydureon) is a glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist (GLP-1 receptor agonist) medication, belonging to the group of incretin mimetics, approved in April 2005 for the treatment of diabetes mellitus type 2.

length of time taking Byetta

I've been taking Byetta for 10 years and am wondering howany others there are that jave used it this long. I take 10mcg twice a day and recently at the evening dose I end up being nauseated which I have never experienced before. Wondering if I should cut down to 5mcg at that meal. Anyone else having that problem after long time use? ## Nausea can be a normal side effect, as reported by the FDA, however, the issue here is to try to figure out what has caused it to happen now, after such a long time. Are you on any other medications? Has anything else changed, such as your diet? The time you take it, or etc.? Its other typical side effects may include dizziness, site irritation, redness and hypotension.

senso di sazietà

Ciao a tutti, sono oramai 6 anni che uso il byetta prima ed adesso il byduron ho perso circa 25 kg nel primo anno di terapia ma dopo il terzo anno non ho piu provato quel senso di sazietà che l'exenatide dà. ho oramai ripreso almeno 18 dei kg persi. Esiste una soluzione? ## Ciao , Alessandro ! Come stai? Che cosa hai glicemie stato ? Si fa a controllare regolarmente ? In generale , l'aumento della fame in un diabetico è dovuta alla loro glicemia essere fuori controllo . Ti anche guardare ciò che si mangia di stare lontano da un sacco di cibi grassi e zuccherati alti ? La FDA elenca gli effetti collaterali tipici di questo farmaco come forse anche nasuea , diziness , mal di stomaco , flatulenza e ipoglicemia.

amox clav Byetta

Should I stop taking byetta while I am taking amox clav 875 mg? ## Hi Jane, Upon looking up drug interactions, I haven't come across any discrepancies listed between Amoxicillin clavulanate potassium and Byetta (Exenatide). So based off this intel alone, I don't see why you wouldn't be able to take the two together unless instructed otherwise by your doctor. Having said that, it sounds like you'd be fine, but I'd also encourage you to double check with your doctor first just to be on the safe side. Hope this helps!

why byetta and not insulin

I am confused as to why doctors are pushing byetta when it can cause major problems with pancreas and also kidneys and maybe thyroid cancer (in mice) ? It seems to me I am better off using short term insulin and not dealing with all the other issues. ## Many doctors today are only pushing drugs that are covered by insurance companies and nothing else, and I think it is because this is how doctor's make their money. If you even mention to them an alternative that works just as well or better, it's as if you're speaking another language, since it doesn't put any more money in their pocket. There has been scientific evidence for a quite a while now, demonstrating how Diabetes type 2 is caused by an excess of fat in the bloodstream, which then causes unstable blood glucose l...

biada

used for treatment of diabetes ## just want to ask im not on diabetic pills my blood sugar goes down to low , my a1c is 6.4 does this pill biada work to keep it in safe levels ? saw it on the news said it is from lizard spit ? lol ## The correct name is Byetta, it is not approved to treat Type I and it is not a pill, it is an injection. Like any other drug, it works differently for different people, only you and your doctor can decide what medication is best for you. ## By the way, this is also meant to treat people with HIGH sugar levels, not low ones, it would make them lower and could create dangerous problems.
